A quick visit to the news alerts site of the Committee to Protect Journalists shows that members of the fourth estate face death and injury around the world on a routine and ongoing basis. By those standards, the body-slamming of a reporter for The Guardian by Greg Gianforte, a conservative candidate for US Congress, might pale by comparison.
It should not, argues syndicated conservative columnist Mona Charen. "Those whose moral compass has long since been stashed in the bottom drawer defending the indefensible piled on to applaud Gianforte’s thuggishness," she wrirtes. But "none of this is a gray area...some who call themselves conservatives have shown they are nothing of the kind." Courtesy National Review.
